Filipe Luis says Neymar does not insult his opponents
Filipe Luis has defended his fellow Barcelona super star Neymar Jr. Neymar attracted criticism from Ateletico Madrid, the club in which Filipe Luis plays, last season. In January when Barcelona faced Ateletico Madrid, Gabi the Ateletico midfielder was sent off after an altercation with Neymar. Gabi and other players of Ateletico accused Neymar of showboating and provocative behavior.
However, Filipe Luis says that although it is not unusual to see things like players making fun of other teams in Spain, but he has known Neymar since long time and Neymar would not make fun of his opponents. He went on to say that Neymar is not the type of person who would make fun of anyone.He further said that the whole focus would be on the game and we will try to stop Neymar from scoring as he is very lethal with the ball. Filipe Luis further said that the game will be quit tough and as it is just the start of the season, the players will be fresher and one can expect a really crunch attacking game.
It would be interesting to see how the two sides play and how Neymar performs on Saturday.
